Center for Academic Success

Guiding Your Personal Growth and Academic Path

Dawn Abt-Perkins

The mission of the Center for Academic Success is to assist students commitment to their intellectual and personal growth through maximizing their learning opportunities and supporting their academic goals, resulting in on-time graduation and future success.

“We know our students by name.”  This key idea from the College’s mission statement guides our work in the Center.  

We believe that no Lake Forest student makes it to graduation totally on their own. We know that Foresters  work together in learning partnerships, with mentors, and by building a team of support networks.
